Q's Attempting to Break 50 DMA Support

Q's Attempting to Break 50 DMA Support
By Mike Paulenoff, www.MPTrader.com

Editor's Note: As Mike is traveling this is our last Mid-Day Minute until Monday June 16.

As we speak, the Q's are pressing against their sharply rising 50 DMA (47.73), which if violated and sustained, likely will trigger additional weakness that projects prices into the 46.50 target area. HOWEVER, usually, a 4 day decline (off of the 6/05 recovery high at 50.61) will NOT be able to generate enough power to violate a sharply upward angled 50 DMA that has been gaining momentum for the past 10 weeks. If anything, the first test of the DMA contains the weakness, and then, after an intervening rally, the next decline plunging through the MA. Having said that, my hourly pattern work is telling me to expect more intraday weakness into the 47.50 area, which indeed will be a break of the 50 DMA. But what matters is whether such a break down can sustain and close beneath the MA. Right now, that is the key consideration.
